SubjectRe: [patch] O(1) scheduler, -D1, 2.5.2-pre9, 2.4.17
Below are some benchmark results when running the D1 version
of the O(1) scheduler on 2.5.2-pre9. To add another data point,
I hacked together a half-a** multi-queue scheduler based on
the 2.5.2-pre9 scheduler. haMQ doesn't do load balancing or
anything fancy. However, it aggressively tries to not let CPUs
go idle (not always a good thing as has been previously discussed).
For reference, patch is at: lse.sourceforge.net/scheduling/2.5.2-pre9-hamq
I can't recommend this code for anything useful.

All benchmarks were run on an 8-way Pentium III 700 MHz 1MB caches.
Number of CPUs was altered via the maxcpus boot flag.

mkbench - Time how long it takes to compile the kernel.
We use 'make -j 8' and increase the number of makes run
in parallel. Result is average build time in seconds.
Lower is better.

Surprisingly, O(1) seems to do worse than the vanilla scheduler
in almost all cases.

Chat - VolanoMark simulator. Result is a measure of throughput.
Higher is better.

O(1) scheduler does better than Vanilla as load and number of
CPUs increase. Still need to look into why it does worse on
the less loaded 2 CPU runs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Reflex - lat_ctx(of LMbench) on steroids. Does token passing
to over emphasize scheduler paths. Allows loading of
the runqueue unlike lat_ctx. Result is microseconds
per round. Lower is better. All runs with 0 delay.

Lower is better.

I believe the poor showings for O(1) at the low end are the
result of having the 2 tasks run on 2 different CPUs. This
is the right thing to do in spite of the numbers. You
can see lock contention become a factor in the Vanilla scheduler
as load and number of CPUs increase. Having multiple runqueues
eliminates this problem.
